Schedule for a day
A Day Busy with Housework, Work and Childcare
My day consists of three pillars: housework, work and childcare.
I wake up to the sound of my children's voices, and after waking up, it's a busy morning of making lunch and breakfast in minutes. After dropping them off at kindergarten, I concentrate on my work.
Since she is a freelancer, she often works from home, and sometimes takes a break from work to walk 30 minutes to the supermarket to cook reserve greens and get some exercise.
When the children come home from kindergarten, I play with them and talk with them while I do the evening chores, finishing putting them to bed by 8:00 p.m. At night I check the manuscripts I wrote during the day and prepare for interviews.
The day goes by quickly, but I try to find a comfortable way of living through trial and error so that I can have HAA time between work and time with my children.
Deep breathing in daily life Deep Breathing in Our Lives
After finishing work in the morning, the hour during lunch break is an important time to take a breather.
After typing long, concentrated sentences at work, my hands tend to get sore and achy. Recently, I have been enjoying taking a hand bath during my lunch break.
The best thing about taking a hand bath is that it is easy and relaxing. Put about 3 spoons of HAA for bath in a basin of hot water and stir.
Relax while slowly massaging your hands after a long day of computer work.
This is my favorite HAA time because it warms my hands and I feel like it relieves my fatigue.
Please see this article for specific instructions on how to take a hand bath.
2. Bathing time with children.
In the evening, I pick up the kids from kindergarten and take a bath as soon as I get home. The children are delighted when I say, "Let's put in some bath salts today. The children were so excited when I said, "Let's put in some bath salts today.
The children soak in the bathtub longer than usual, saying things like, "It's nice hot water, isn't it?
Although the atmosphere is not conducive to taking a deep breath, taking a bath together as a family is one of our daily pleasures.
3. 30 minutes of me time before bed.
Ideally, the 30 minutes before bed should be spent stretching, reading a book or magazine, and relaxing. However, the reality is that it can be quite difficult ....... Still, getting under the covers before the date changes is a promise I have made to myself for more than 10 years. I believe that getting enough sleep will put me in a good mood tomorrow.
Incorporate HAA time well "in between" and "while you're at it".
Childcare, housework, and work.
Because I spend my days in a flurry of work, childcare, and housework, I would like to adopt the habit of taking deep breaths "in between" work or when I am out shopping.
If I can relax by taking a deep breath, my family will feel the same way.
The new school year has just begun. In order to be close to my nervous children, I would like to spend my time being conscious of taking a deep breath myself first.
In this way, this series of articles will introduce HAA members' lives with deep breathing. Please look forward to the next installment.
